a Collection for Body Designed to dial up the brights and glow as you mean it
The about-face, the multi-dimensional beauty brand founded by Ashley Frangipane, professionally known as Halsey, announces the release of its first franchise for the body. An extension of two of the brand’s signature collections, Fractal and Light Lock, Shine of the Times features exclusive shimmering formulas and a luxurious contoured brush for smooth application. Always 100% vegan and cruelty-free, the capsule drops today.
n line with the brand’s promise of transformation and personal self-expression through makeup for every face, the Shine of the Times is a breakthrough in both color and shine for everybody. The refined glitter formulas are futuristic, transfer-resistant, and long-wearing with potent pigments and superfine celestial sparkle.
“The Shine of the Times campaign is all about illuminating and celebrating every part of the body you’re in”, said Halsey about-face Founder, Head Makeup Artist, and Chief Creative Officer. “My hope for these formulas is that they will help about-face enthusiasts shine a light on their favorite parts of themselves, head to toe.”
The new about-face collection includes five (5) shades of Light Lock Illuminating Body [SRP $18], a jelly cream that shimmers in shades ranging from a luminescent lavender with a blue shift to a warm bronze with a gold shift and more. Fractal Glitter Dust [SRP $16] is a silky formula that melts into the skin in shades ranging from a deep emerald with blue sparkle to a silvered iced pink and color-shifting chrome in various hues. Rounding out the drop is the velvety-soft all-over Light Lock Body Brush [SRP $15], designed to pair perfectly with the jelly creme product and engineered with a sensual, tufted shape to skim over the body.
Light Lock Illuminating Body is a featherweight, buildable veil of pearly color that blurs imperfections and dials in a sun-kissed glow transforming from subtle shimmer to next-level luminosity with each layer. The blendable formula can be worn over or under other products for an all-day sheen that won’t transfer, smudge or wear off.
Fractal Glitter Dust is a crystalline pigment that melts onto the skin playing with the light for a pure, multi-dimensional sheen. It’s formulated for both the body and face and glides on smooth-as-butter, then softens into a luminous, delicate gleam.
Light Lock Body Brush is an ultra-luxurious and high-performance brush, contoured and shaped to follow every curve of the body. Made from 100% synthetic filaments, its shape, and super soft texture allow for even, flawless application and perfect blending.
